Gramam (2012) Malayalam Movie Review Aggregator
‘Gramam’ won Sukumari the National Award for Best Supporting actress, and the film that has been directed by Mohan Sharma has been released in Kerala last week. Reviews of the film are quite mixed. Here is what the critics have to say about the film.
Nowrunning feels that the thought processes behind the film do not transact on to the screen: “As the film races to a climax, the country gains freedom and so does Thulasi. Malli, the parrot that had remained in the cage for long, is set free as well. And you realize, that with all the energy and efforts, and with a fine thought running through, ‘Gramam’ as a film, should have been much, much better.”
Rediff says the film tries to be perfect, but fails: “The film tries to be perfect but there’s a disconnect. The overall experience of watching Gramam is like reading something that is grammatically correct but not emotionally stirring.”
The Times of India thinks its good: “Gramam evokes wistful emotions and stays true to its purpose. It has a well-etched cast who emote with earnestness and clarity.”
